Disadvantages: Needs a bit more raunch
Brastop.com prides itself as selling big bras at small prices.
I signed up their newsletter last year but always ignored their emails, thinking that, even though I'm a buxom lass, I could get away with buying really cheap yet fashionable bras at ASDA. That was until late last year after much nagging from my mother I went and had a professional fitting. I'd been wearing a 36DD when in fact it turns out I'm a 34GG. They don't do this size in ASDA and the only other option was to pay top dollar for a bra. What's a girl to do? I turned to the trusty internet.
Remembering the emails I'd received I turned my immediate attention to brastop.com.
The site specializes in bras and swimwear for bigger busted ladies, yet the prices are severely discounted compared to the high street and department stores.
The site is very easy to navigate. Products are set into categories by style, colour, brands and sizes and it is possible to search by any of these.
Sizes range from 28D to 48FF and there are 31 different brands available on the site, these include: Curvy Kate, Gossard, Freya, Ultimo and Panache to name but a few. Maternity, sports bras and shape wear are also available.
The site has a fitting room function, which explains how to measure the bust correctly ans demonstrates how a correctly fitted bra should look and feel, with the use of handy videos.
The look of the site is pretty much what you would expect of a site selling underwear with lots of pics of tastefully scantily clad ladies.
Selecting items for you shopping bag is easy, click on the item you require and select the size, then checkout. Payment can be made wither my credit or debit card, paypal or Google Checkout.
Delivery and Returns
UK delivery is free when you spend over £50 otherwise it's £5.95 for special delivery (which allows you to nominate the day) or £2.95 for standard delivery.
They deliver worldwide but prices vary.
To return an item you need to download a returns form from the site, the garments must still have the tags attached. You do have to pay to return an item though.
exchanges can be arranged by phoning or emailing the customer services team.
The first time I used bra stop I was a little annoyed. I ordered one item just so that I could try the site out. I ordered a Curvy Kate bra that would have retailed at around £28 for a mere £13.45. I paid via paypal and received an email confirming my order. After 3 days it hadn't arrived, on the 4th day I got an email informing me the item was out of stock, it stated I could chose an alternative item or be refunded. Although this is fair I would've preffered to have been told it was out of stock at the time of ordering. I opted for the refund and as good as their word the money was refunded to paypal account within 3 days.
I then received an email, containing a discount code for 20% off any purchase so I decided to give them another whirl. Again I chose one item which was already in the sale for £12 and entered my discount code at checkout so I paid £9.60 plus postage. I was waiting for another email telling me it was out of stock but 48 hours later my bra was here.
Since then I use bra stop all the time and have never had a problem
I would highly recommend brastop.com. The savings are amazing, they always keep their customers up to date with, new arrivals, discount codes and sales. I've never had to return anything but the help section of the site is so informative it seems quite simple.
On the down side as a girl who like to give her fella a treat, they don't really sell anything raunch, its more pretty and functional. They could do with a wee bit of sexing up to add a bit of sauce.
